    100 reps

    So, I typically do alot of powerlifting workouts and such and wanted to task myself with something completly different so i ran the following workouts. I am not doing this normally or anything, It felt awesome and really difficult, had to prove to myself that my endurance was not down with all the lower reps higher weight lately.

    100 of bench 225.lbs.
    100 of standing military press 185lbs

    Today did 100 squats 225 lbs
    Nothing followed after squat i tried some light deadlifts with the intent of hitting the 100 but there was no way lol. Went ahead just did a normal workout for back after that.

    Just want to get some feedback, see if anyone else has attempt something like this. I would not make a habit of doing this often as its probally pretty catabolic but it felt good afterwards.

    I've done high reps like that before, not with that kinda weight though, that's pretty impressive. I don't do it regularly, I just read about it before and tried it. I would imagine it trains strictly muscle endurance, but probably stimulates what slow twitch muscle fibers you have in those muscle groups in a way they usually aren't. Also, it is catabolic, but so is your entire workout. Catabolism is simply the process of your body breaking down fat/carbs/protein for energy, hence why you can't build muscle in that state.

    don't think it was 100 straight. louie simmons recently did 225 for 49 reps straight on bench to show up some of the NFL combine kids workouts. There are some cops who come into the gym where i work out and do those 100 rep workouts. They do however many reps they can with a certain weight then rest for that many seconds, so if they can hit say 30 reps with 185 and fail they rest 30 seconds and go again so your rest periods get shorter and shorter the more wore out you get

    I was unable to do them straight i took a couple a quick breaks, I broke it up into about 5 totals sets the first one being a set of 50, the rest being way less like 20, 10, 5 and 5 again. I had a buddy to keep me motivated to hit rounded numbers when i was hitting muscle fatigue. I would breaks for maybe enough time to mentally recollect and maybe sip some water. I felt good the next day,

    ^^ yeah me too. The top guy at the NFL combine only benched 225 49 reps this year. Not saying 50 is impossible but you must be in the upper echelon of powerlifters/strengh athletes if you accomplished that

    I need to check these forums more often, I will have to make a youtube video I suppose. LoL.

    I honestly dont think i am all that strong IMO, my max bench is 405. I see people lift more than me, It makes me feel good to hear people say my 100 rep set is impressive.

    What are your stats?

    Are you suggesting that you can do 50 reps at 225lbs on the Bench Press (properly) ?

    endurance training is way cool.. conditioning the cns to take that much punishment is an adventure..

    I do 300 reps 300 lbs leg press...

    I'll start the upper body lifts, same type of training..
